Dissolve all ingredients (except ethanol, bicarbonate, reducing agents and vitamins) in distilled water and boil for 1 min. After cooling to room temperature under 80% N2 and 20% CO2 gas atmosphere, add ethanol, dispense in Hungate tubes and autoclave. After autoclaving, add bicarbonate from a sterile stock solution prepared under 80% N2 and 20% CO2 gas atmosphere and vitamins from an anoxic and filter-sterilized stock solution. Before inoculation, add cysteine and sulfide from sterile anoxic stock solutions prepared under N2. Adjust pH of medium to 6.8 – 7.0, if necessary. If reduction of medium is not complete after inoculation, add 10 – 20 mg per L sodium dithionite from a 5% w / v solution freshly prepared under N2 and filter sterilized.
